Another sign of summer is Memorial Day! Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as "Decoration Day" and it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. It also means a 3 day weekend for me!! I'm looking forward to being off and catching up.
The weather is feeling like summer. Along with the arrival of lightning bugs we've had hot and humid weather here in Virginia which has brought with it evening thunder storms, which has made everything so green and lush. The honeysuckle is blooming everywhere too. I love its sweet smell which is filling the air all around us. While there doesn't seem to be a shortage of bugs, I'm not seeing very many honey-bees, and have yet to see a bat this year--I worry and wonder what's become of them...We did take the dogs for a walk last evening. They love exploring and being able to wander around, especially after a long day of our being gone. Our "little CarrieAnne" who is a golden mix, disappeared at the end of our walk. I knew where she'd gone; she had decided she wanted to cool off. Her wandering off isn't a problem because she never goes far and returns when called. But for the last 2 years she has gone to a place that only she knows about and takes a swim. I've no idea where her private swimming hole is, and by looking at this picture, she's not going to tell!
Finally I'll let you know that Tanner continues to improve. He's now feeling confident enough to go down the 2 steps outside on his own. He head is still tilting to the left, but I'm hopeful that given time this will go away. His stubborness has returned though, because when I reach down to grab his collar to lead him back inside, he tries to run off--A good sign that he's feeling better!! I hope you have an enjoyable weekend!!
